Illinois Compass 2g, Adding A File Attachment

On this page, you can find options for adding attachments to different areas of your course in Illinois Compass 2g.


You can add file attachments to different areas in a course, such as to a content item, an assignment, or a Discussion Board post. Users open a file by clicking a link to the file that appears in the course.

Locate the file to be attached to your course using one of the following options:

  • To upload a file from your computer, click Browse My Computer.
  • To upload a file from the course's storage repository:
    • If Course Files is the course's content, click Browse Course, or
    • Click Browse Content Collection.

After selecting a file to attach, you may add a name for the link to the file. This link title appears to users, instead of the name of the document. For example, add "Biology Syllabus" as the link title instead of leaving the file name syllabus_bio_101.doc.
